In 1472, Jeanne's father has arranged her marriage to the French Lieutenant Lagoy against her wishes, but armed forces are swelling outside the stone walls and so Jeanne risks her life to rally the city's women to protect the freedom of her people and perhaps herself.

In 1797, Betsy, a feisty, brave Irish girl, her brother George and best friend, Will, secretly join the rebel army, unbeknownst to her father, hoping to liberate Ireland from the yoke of English rule. In 1960's Australia, Fiona wants to fit in with her new university friends but her values and convictions are challenged when Luke gets his conscription papers. Will she join the protest movement and march for peace, in opposition to her family and society?

Liberty is an action-filled account of three women, all living in different times but descended from one female bloodline, who find themselves fighting forces that threaten their freedom.
